Time is running out! Have you completed the online benefits re-enrollment process yet?


Contributed by Cheryl Thomason

As a reminder, completion of the online re-enrollment process via Parnassus Employee Self-Service is highly recommended. If you opt-out of medical benefits, had shared family coverage, or wish to elect a spending account for 2014, you must complete the online re-enrollment process by Noon on Friday, November 22.

Default coverage will automatically be assigned to anyone who does not complete the re-enrollment process - sorry, no exceptions.

Completing the process allows you to:

1) confirm that you and each of your eligible dependents are covered under the benefits you intend
2) change levels of coverages
3) opt for new coverages
4) review beneficiaries
5) enroll in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA)

*PLEASE NOTE:* There will be personal assistance available on November 20 and 21 from 8:30am – 4 pm and on Friday, November 22, 8:30am – Noon. These drop-in sessions will be held on the Garden Level of the Peggy Ryan Williams Center. An Aetna representative will be available on November 20 (8:30am - 3pm)  and 21 (9am - 4pm) to answer any questions you may have regarding medical plans.

Re-enrollment materials can be found at: /hr/benefits/reenrollment2014/

If you have any questions, please call 274-8000 or email us at benefits@ithaca.edu.

Thank you for your cooperation!
